Prometheus 2. The Real Myth Is Thrilling!

Prometheus by Ridley Scott

Prometheus and Prometheus 2 by Ridley Scott have a good title. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) wants to know her creators. Will be they similar to Zeus? Will be she punished as Prometheus? Read about the real myth.

In Greek Mythology, Prometheus was people’s benefactor and Titan protector of human civilization. In Athens, he was honored for stealing fire from the gods what means their knowledge. Then, he was punished by Zeus.

Prometheus had no fear of the gods, and he ridiculed Zeus and his little insight. Once, Prometheus sacrificed an oxen and cut it into two parts. The first contained the meat, the second only bones with fat. Zeus smelled the delicious fat and chose the second half to eat. Only bones! How Prometheus laughed! How people celebrate the joke!

Outraged by this deception, Zeus deprived of fire to mankind. Prometheus decided to steal it, so he climbed Mount Olympus, stole fire from the chariot of Helios and gave it to people again.

Prometheus 2. The Real Myth Is Thrilling!

Prometheus by Ridley Scott

Zeus took vengeance on Prometheus and had him taken to the Caucasus, where he was chained by Hephaestus with the help of Cratos and Bia. Zeus sent an eagle (daughter of the monsters Typhon and Echidna) to eat the liver of Prometheus. Being immortal, his liver grew back every night, and the eagle returned to eat every day. This punishment was to last forever!

But Heracles (Zeus’ son) went through the place on the way to the garden of the Hesperides and freed him shooting an arrow at the eagle. Prometheus was released, although he must carry with him a ring attached to a piece of the rock to which he was chained.

Moral: you never want to know the secrets of the gods.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
